If you have piles of old T-shirts taking up space in your closet, why not turn them into a beautiful and functional, keepsake T-shirt quilt?
We all know that T-shirts are a DIY dream for simple projects. Even the scraps are useful, as we saw with this awesome doggie chew toy!
But what about T-shirts that you want to save and cherish forever — T-shirts that are a memento of something awesome? Turn ‘em into a quilt!
- 12 or 16 T-shirts
- fusible interfacing
- Square stencil
- Cutting wheel
- Tracing mat
- Sewing supplies
- Large piece of fabric
- Lay out each T-shirt, and stencil out the square of the shirt you want to use. Use cutting wheel and tracing mat to slice out each square.
- Lay squares out and decide on your design. Make a 3 x 4 quilt with 12 tees, or 4 x 4 with 16. If you have more shirts, you can make a larger quilt.
- Cut fusible to size with the squares, then iron onto the back of each square.
- Stitch squares together in rows across, then stitch the rows together into one large piece.
- Cut a large piece of fabric to fit the completed patchwork section.
- Lay patchwork face down on fabric and stitch edges together, leaving one corner open.
- Pull quilt right-side-out through the corner and straighten, then roll raw edges under and stitch shut.
